Hope for the hopelessly brokenhearted. If you can find love, it changes everything.

I kept my promises to see no other, I kept my word while I stayed with you
D C D D C D
I can’t imagine being with another, there’s no one else that will ever do
G D Bm A2 G D Bm A2
But I’ve wandered so far from home and I’ve wondered if I’ll end up alone
G A Bm Bm
And I can’t go down that long road again
G A Bm Bm
So if I’m gone the next time you turn to look around
Asus2 Bm Asus2 Bm Bm
You can find me on the other side of town, You can find me on the other side of town

I held my will intact and fought for water, held my dream that was built for two
D C D D C D
I spent a lifetime’s love on heaven’s daughter, only finding there was more to do

G D Bm A G D Bm A
But I’ve wandered so far from home and I’ve wondered if I’ll end up alone
G A Bm Bm
And I can’t go down that long road again
G A Bm
So if I’m gone the next time you turn to look around
Asus2 Bm Asus2 Bm
You can find me on the other side of town, You can find me on the other side of town

A2 A2 Bm Bm Em Em Bm A2 A2
Stand up! Hold on! Stand up! Hold on!

I wait inside our place for your arrival, I want to see your face just once again

I’m truly grateful for the love that I’ve known, but I’ll be riding on that midnight train
